I Support Ken Cuccinelli’s Fight Against Socialized Medicine

On Tuesday, March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law a health care bill of historic proportions. That bill includes an individual mandate on Americans that declares that they must buy health insurance or face penalties. This overreaches the authority of Congress under the Commerce Clause and is therefore unconstitutional. Yesterday, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli filed a suit in federal district court in Richmond challenging the constitutionality of this legislation. It is heartening that there are public servants who still believe in, and are willing to defend, the United States Constitution.

The United States Senators and Representatives who passed this legislation have betrayed their oath of office. Since they’ve long forgotten, here it is:

I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Show your support for General Cuccinelli by joining the "I Support Ken Cuccinelli’s Fight Against Socialized Medicine” Facebook Group.

Homes for Our Troops

I wanted to tell you folks about an outstanding charity—Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization which adapts and builds new homes for severely injured Servicemen and women and their families. This organization has had a positive impact locally and is certainly worth a look. Homes for Our Troops helped to purchase and retrofit a home in Dale City, VA for SSG Eugene Simpson, who was paralyzed from the waist down after an IED exploded near his vehicle in Tikrit, Iraq. Homes for Our Troops helps those brave men and women who have so selflessly given to their country.

If you’re thinking about making a donation this holiday season but can’t quite decide on a charity, please consider Homes for Our Troops. Not only is the mission of this organization a noble one, but it has a leadership team who ensures that each dollar is used judiciously. This fiscal year, costs for administration and fundraising were just 7% of donations.

The Draft Pace Movement Has Gone International

Gen Pace made the Telegraph's (UK) list of the 100 most influential conservatives in the U.S. Word of this movement has apparently reached our friends across the pond. Also, thanks to Norman Leahy at Bacon's Rebellion for his thoughtful piece on the 2008 U.S. Senate race. Of a potential Pace candidacy, Leahy states:
...if he [Pace] should decide to answer this call, it would make for one of the more interesting, and one hopes, informative primary campaigns Virginia has seen in some time. It would also provide Republicans with the opportunity to present a real choice to voters in the general election.
Mr. Leahy, I couldn't agree with you more.

Coverage in Leftist Blogs

A brief survey of the more left-leaning blogs (Raising Kaine and Think Progress among others) demonstrates the growing coverage of the movement on both sides of the spectrum. The overall tone in many of these blogs is hateful and all-around unproductive. General Pace is a solutions-oriented leader. While we should be focused on gathering support and motivating the base, we should not be afraid to take on this hateful rhetoric. General Pace served almost 40 years of his life in the Corps so that we can have this dialogue. Let's make him proud.

Tuesday, October 9, 2007 Covers Draft Pace Movement

GOP campaign consultant Matt Lewis mentioned the Draft Pace movement on The Draft Pace movement is reaching out to senior GOP leadership in Virginia about the prospects of a Pace candidacy. In the meantime, we need to keep up the intensity. More to follow.

As an Honorably discharged United States Marine who served in Vietnam with C Co 1/3 3rd Marine Div 68-69, I highly support Gen Pace to run for the Senate.
It's the enthusiasm of folks like John O'Brien, USMC (ret.), that are the lifeblood of this movement. We always hear things like, "This is the most important election of your life." The fact of the matter is that all elections are important, but in 2008 Virginians will decide who will succeed John Warner in the United States Senate. General Pace is a leader. We need more leaders in Washington and less politicians. God-fearing, Small Government, Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Military Virginians need a candidate who can beat Mark Warner. General Pace is the man for the job.

Word of this movement is spreading like wildfire. Thanks to all who have spread the word. Your work is paying off. A special thanks to Extreme Mortman, Scott's Morning Brew and Beth at Blue Star Chronicles for their coverage of this movement.
